The title of my film project is Bar After Work. The main idea that I started with was decisions and consequences that some people live for. This topic is everywhere from my work place to television and the radio. The popular slang word or phrase for alcoholism today is “Turn up.” The source of my idea comes from the observation of living and working in the real world. This topic comes to a bit of concern to me from the number of wine or beer bottles I recycle after work. The content of this film involves absurd and wild behavior.
I wanted my audience to laugh out loud to my piece. This story is about a character getting off work and going to a bar. In the beginning the main character is wearing a hard hat and a floating clock appears. He praises for the clock’s presence and exits the scene. In the next scene there is an 80’s themed music score to go along with his journey to the bar at the end of the walk the sun goes down. When the main character arrives at the bar he pulls out a beer out of nowhere and immediately begins drinking one beer after another. The character becomes intoxicated and gets double vision mistakenly seeing a smaller woman for a larger woman. The character gets into a fight and gets knocked out. He later wakes up in the morning with vomit on his face and no clothes on.
After viewing my work the content did not change. I don’t think there is a deeper meaning in the piece.
Areas where the film fell short were in the delivery and timing of the jokes. Some of the scenes ran a bit long. The repetitive score from the bar scene seemed annoying and too long at times. Overall I can tighten up the timing to be faster and funnier.
The process in learning the art of shadow puppeting was fun. It seems easy to make some shadows on a wall or making a few puppets here and there. Building a set and multiple characters takes time. The ability to preform the same act for a camera and being in the right spot takes time. There is no way of preforming a puppet show with many special effects without the help of friends and classmates. Finally after watching back the show after many long takes of behind the scenes rigging you find a new perspective of the show.
